The Winner is................

Erin Fish!  Congratulations!  You won the first giveaway of the New Year!

(I sent you an email, so please look for it!)  

Thank you to everyone who shared their ups and downs.  

My 2016 has started off with some great sadness.  We had to put down our black lab of 15 years last week.  It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do.  It was time.  He was suffering.  

He was my first baby and will be forever in our hearts.  

Even with this sadness, I am ready for the year ahead.  Life keeps on going.  My kids keep getting older and bigger by the day, and the business continues grow as well.  So, I allow morning and evening time to mourn, and this week, I am ready to tackle a more regular work schedule.  I know he is happy, and at peace- running in creeks all day, totally pain free now!

Thank you for everyone who followed me last week on facebook and lent support and encouragement.  I know you all love dogs as much as I do, and they are family.  You guys really helped me through a tough week!


  1. Thank you Staci so much for this generous gift. I will treasure it as I have admired and loved your work for quite some time - and looking forward to your class and learning some new techniques and ideas.

  2. So sorry for your loss. We had to put our lab/golden mix down last year at 15 as well. So blessed to have had our amazing Molly for so long but still hurts.
